Gov. Andrew Cuomo Bans e-cigarettes in New York City

  • E-cigarettes are devices that typically deliver nicotine flavorings and other additives to users via an inhaled aerosol

New York State Sen.

NY state banned vaping at public indoor spaces in a bill signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday.

The state's Clean Indoor Air Act previously regulated smoking substances containing tobacco, like cigarettes, cigars and pipes, in public indoor places.

In July, Cuomo signed legislation that immediately banned the use of e-cigarettes on all public and private school grounds in ny state.

"I'm concerned about whether we in some ways respect the rights of adults who are not harming others, and I think this begins to tread some kind of line", Ronald Bayer, professor of sociomedical sciences at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, tells Newsweek. Mike Davoli of the American Cancer Society said that the law ensures that you can go to a restaurant with your kids and be sure that neither you nor the kids are exposed to an electronic cigarette. Though the action ultimately failed, C.L.A.S.H. claimed that the regulation of e-cigarettes as an addendum to the Smoke-Free Air Act was unconstitutional.

The state's crackdown on the $2.5 billion industry is not a total surprise.

Studies into the long-term health impact of e-cigarettes - which usually contain nicotine - are limited but of the studies that have been completed, there have been mixed results.

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and vaping are being banned in bars, restaurants and most workplaces in the U.S. state of NY under a new law that takes effect in 30 days.

Several other major cities including Boston, New Orleans, and Chicago have also banned the practice, Fortune reported. Some states have banned vaping only in specific facilities like government offices and schools.

This is not the first time the Empire State has snuffed out tobacco products. The new law also raises the minimum age to buy hookah to 21 from 18.
